It has provided aid to several countries around the world to achieve the international cooperation goals of the Qatar National Vision 2030. The Qatar Fund for Development's main goal is to achieve inclusive and sustainable development, by addressing priority issues of education, health and economic empowerment. QFFD's most important Sustainable Development Goals are:



  • SDG 3: "Ensuring healthy lives and well-being for all";

  • Goal 4: "Ensuring fair and inclusive education for all and enhancing lifelong learning for all";

  • Goal 8: "Promoting sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth and keeping full and productive employment and decent work for all".


QFFD spares no effort to achieve the other sustainable development goals including Goal 2 "Total eradication of hunger", Goal 6 "providing secure clean drinking water" and Goal 17 "building partnerships to achieve goals". The Qatar Fund for Development cooperates with many active actors experienced in development efforts to achieve the sustainable development goals.
